workers got their job back. 10:35 this morning, this program, the reporter who broke that story wbjk's rob wolchek, he will be with us. >>> suppose you are a very big company doing business all over the world. you make a lot of money. and the owners of the company want to keep it. what do you do? well, you scour the planet for a parking place that lets you keep your profit. here's my take on google and bermuda. the story is this, google funneled nearly 10 billion dollars in to bermuda, where there is no corporate tax. google avoided about 2 billion dollars in worldwide taxes by doing that. by not bringing back specifically to america, they saved a whole lot more. the irony is that eric schmidt was ceo when the money was parked in bermuda, yes the pro-tax, pro-obama eric schmidt avoided the tax that president obama enforces. apart from the obvious hypocrisy, there are two points to be made here. number one, eric schmidt did the right thing for his shareholders. they own the company. they want to share in the money that google makes. the ceo has the responsibility to act in their best intere

, david has kids, i have kids. we are stealing from them. we are robbing them. a child born today owes nearly 300 grand -- no wonder they are crying when they come out of their mother's woman because they are broke. when will the democrats deal with their reckless spending? >> it doesn't help if we have those children born into an economy that goes backwards. >> like the obama economy. >> we need to promote growth and invest in people. >> yes. >> it's like having spending and saying i'm not sending my kid to college because we can save a dime today. that's shortsighted thinking and not what we need. >> government spinning does not cause growing. you have to start believing in adam smith. you have not answered the question why obama -- why you are supporting obama's reckless spending. he refuses to cut spending, he refuses to reform entitlements. if he is it, we go back up -- >> sean has been -- let me say, i'm not supporting anybody's reckless spending. i want to make a note for the audience sean hannity has been an honest man. he said he condemned when the prescription drug benefit wa

two of my one on one interview with blackrock president rob kapito, coming up later on "power lunch." here is a quick preview of what he has it say about the state of investing. >> what i'm really worried about more than the fiscal cliff is that it's taking attention from investors to actually invest. so you can't invest for the future in the future. almost every asset class has a positive return p th year. so if you sat on the sideline, worried about the fiscal cliff, sitting in cash, in your bank account, you've left double-digit returns and the equity market, high single digit returns across many fixed income products and commodity products. so there you go. another year has been wasted because you're so focused on what's going on in washington and you should be very focused on your own pocketbook right now. and invest now and not wait for the future. >> but if you had done that as well, you have to be in the right spots. >> and you have to be in it -- in it for the long-term, right? allocate, stick to the plan and be in it for the long-term. and he is absolutely correct. but you
